Well, it finally happened: The NFL is in “Fortnite.”
Starting Nov. 9, gamers will be able to purchase NFL themed outfits from the “Fortnite” item shop. Epic Games announced Monday. Furthermore, NFL-themed emotes will be added to the game, as well as special gliders and harvesting tools.
Translation: You’ll be able to wear your favorite team’s jersey, make funny gestures — like “first down” and “touchdown” — while you’re playing and that thing you use to gather building materials will look like a football, or something.
Here’s the announcement video:
It was only a matter of time before the world’s most popular video game and the most popular sport in the United States collided. Whether this is a satisfying outcome, however, is for the players to decide.
Fun fact: This will be the first time a video game features female characters wearing full NFL uniforms. Progress.
